The best and the last love in your entire life

A very distracted man has a talk with

Buddha in a temple one late night.

He, ‘Enlightened Buddha, I’m a married

man, but I’m frantically falling in love

with another woman now. I really don’t

know what to do!’

Buddha, ‘ Are you sure that woman

whom you are falling for is the best and

the last love in your life ?’

He, ‘ Yes, I’m sure.’

Buddha: ‘ You divorce your present

wife and marry her, then.’

He, ‘ But my wife is a kind of gentle and

virtuous woman.

Will I be too cruel and immoral to do

this ?’

Buddha, ‘You have already fallen for

someone else. There are truly cruel and

immoral to hold on to a loveless

marriage. You’re making the right


He, ‘ My wife who honesty loves me very

very much !’

Buddha, ‘Then she is happy.’

He, ‘ She should be suffered if I would

divorce her !’ How can she be happy ?’

Buddha, ‘ She has her love for you in

the marriage.

You have lost your love for her in the

marriage because you fell for someone

else. Some say, the happy one is the one

to own the true love. The unhappy one is

the one to loss in love. Hence, you’re the

one to suffer actually.’

He, ‘ But, I’m the one leaving her.

She should be suffered for losing me.’

Buddha, ‘ You’re wrong. You're just an

image to her true love in the marriage.

Her true love will move on to another

image when your image does not exist.

Her true love for marriage will never

fade away. Thus, she will be happy

always. Surely, you’re the one to suffer.’

He, ‘ She said that she only loved me

with all her life !

She wouldn’t love anyone else !’

Buddha, ‘ So, have you ever said the

same to her ?’

He, ‘ I……. !’

Buddha, ‘ There’re three candles in

front of you. Tell me which one is the

brightest ?’

He, ‘ I really don’t know.

They all look like the same.’

Buddha, ‘ The three candles are likened

to the three women. One candle among

others is the woman whom you are in

love with now. But, you are unable to tell

which the brightest is.

There are millions of women to all

mortal beings.

How can you believe that she will be the

best and the last love in your entire life ?’

He, ‘ I…….!’

Buddha, ‘ Now, you pick up a candle

and try to feel it with your heart.

Then, tell me which is the brightest ?’

He, ‘ Of course, this one is the brightest !’

Buddha, ‘ Right, you put it back.

Tell me which is the brightest again ?’

He, ‘Sorry, I really can’t tell the different !’

Buddha, ‘ As a matter of fact, the

candle that you picked is likened to the

last woman you love.

If you love with a heart, you will

certainly feel which the brightest candle


The so-called last love you are having is

only just a fantasy. So, when you put it

back, you can’t tell the different at all.’

He,’ Oh, I understand.

You aren’t telling me to divorce my wife.

You enlighten me !

Now, I truly comprehend who the best

and the last love in my entire life is !

Buddha, ‘ NAN – WU – E – MI –



Love means :

You are not finding a suitable person.

You be the suitable person made of love.
